Occupational Safety and Health Policy Indicators

when 15 June 2020 - 16 June 2020
language English
duration 1 week

In a changing world of work, questions about the scope of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) monitoring and the most reliable OSH policy indicators are becoming increasingly important. Different expectations and changes in working life are major challenges that affect the ability of traditionally used OSH indicators to reflect the most important and relevant OSH issues and to evaluate OSH policy actions and their impact. Existing European and national OSH monitoring systems are still evolving to provide relevant data and useful OSH policy indicators.
